      Pros

      Great learning experience + amazing team members.

      Cons

      Nothing really bad here at IronPlanet. Has that perfect startup feel to it, while also being "corporate".

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at IronPlanet full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      The Fort Worth office is one of a kind! The culture is amazing, and the people are great - everyone from the temps to Sr. Management to the Executives. Even the HR team does a great job, and everyone is always willing to help out another team member if needed. This office breeds workers, so be prepared to work hard, but you will reap the benefits. I suggest trying to get in with the GovPlanet team or Inspection Services...

      Cons

      Little to no training in every department (which weeds out the weak, so not sure if that is a con), The interview process can be excruciating as it can be hours long depending on the job you are applying for. Finally, there's too much free food! Not good to have a desk job and eat all day long!

      Advice to Management

      Stop talking negative about colleagues/coworkers/other employees in front of your team. It really is a morale killer (You're still rad though)!

        Pros

        Relaxed environment, great coworkers, free food and snacks. Good Insurance .

        Cons

        Disorganized upper management, you never get the support you need. Systems are outdated. People in leadership positions go back on there word, co workers have been told they were getting a raise, then they didn't. Entry level pay for everyone except executives. Even if you get promoted, your raise is negligible, less than $100 a month after taxes. The company always seems to dangle a carrot in front of you, you never...

        I have been working at IronPlanet full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Competitive compensation. There are people there who are really committed to doing the best job possible.

        Cons

        Sr. Leadership! Most of them have been riding the CEO's coat tail for years and have just been hanging on until their next big payout with the Ritchie Bro. acquisition. They were only interested in getting the hog fat enough for slaughter and not actually building a great company.

        Advice to Management

        Why bother giving them advice.....they'll all be on the golf course or in their vacation homes after the acquisition goes through,

        Pros

        Open minded to new ideas to tackle new challenges.

        Cons

        Sometimes the workload was extensive but that was to be expected with success.

        Advice to Management

        Better variety for auction day lunches.
